    Believe it or not, I haven't gone into many games this season thinking we were going to kill teams - I kept thinking "we can't just demolish teams every week, this is the NFL...

    But I just have a feeling that the previous two weeks' lackluster, tight wins were more a product of things such as weather, injuries, refs letting DBs get away with murder, some poor execution, dropped balls, etc...all things that came together to make the Pats less effective on both sides of the ball.

    The likelihood of all those things happening again is slim, and I see us getting back to running over teams, starting with the Steelers. They'll blitz, we'll kill them over-the-top, and on defense, BB, Pees, will make Big Ben revert back to Big Dumbass who likes to throw stupid picks. No Colvin or not, we can use Rodney in interesting ways like we have against the Colts/Cowboys, get out ahead early, stay in more nick and dime packages to offset Colvin's loss. 45-21.

    I find it tough to pick this one because of the fatigue (mental and physical) factor, the short week, that it's the Steelers' personal SB of the regular season.

    I don't THINK we will. However it wouldn't surprise me. One thing I know about the Patriots is that they tend to play their best when doubt starts being cast on them and two close wins is the closest to doubt we've had since Spygate ;)

    I don't think they will either. If the Steelers sustain drives like the Eagles and Ravens, they will make it very tough for the Pats. What really disturbs me is that Kyle Boller and A.J. Feely playing such good games. These are QB's that can't throw on any other team but play the game of their lives against the Pats.

    Me. When Peter King picks the steelers to win, and the steelers guarantee a win, I know we're going to blow them out.

    I think we'll win but not sure if we'll roll them over. Then again a few articles may be pinned up and they ignite the fire again.

    They better hope they beat us though. Their mouths have set them up for a massive fall if they dont win.

    They have had their two losses, that turned out to be wins.. it is now December and that is our killer month.. not sure we will "kill" them, but we will beat them soundly.

    But at the same time, we were successful against Manning, Romo, Palmer, and at least 2 out of those 3 QBs are more talented than Big Ben. The Steelers have struggled against crappy teams themselves, so by your own logic, we should beat them soundly - I think it would be more accurate to say that the Steelers loss against the Jets, for instance, is as much a fluke as the Pats lackluster performance against the Ravens.

    Both teams will show up, but the Pats bring their A game, and pretty much score on every drive like they were a few weeks ago. We will once again learn that the NFL hierarchy is Pats, [moderately healthy] Colts and then everybody else.

    I think the Pats purposely exposed themselves in the last couple games to lead Steelers into a trap. Appeared weak when they are strong to fool your adversary and slaughter them. That is the ancient Chinese philosophy.

    I smell this game like Pats and Cowboys game.

    Patriots 48
    Steelers 27
